    Hello, pankaj!

    How does one create gap between two words in latex?

    In LaTeX, if you type: God is now here, it comes out: God is now here

    You might use: \text{God is now here} . . . and get: \text{God is now here}


    If you must insert spaces, you can use a variety of commands.

    A\,B . . . A\,B

    A\:B . . . A\:B

    A\;B . . . A\;B

    A\ B . . . A\ B

    A~B . . . A~B


    A\quad B . . . A\quad B

    A\qquad B . . A\qquad B

    Not quite, in LaTeX "Dog is now here" displays exactly as that, the problem is that the [tex][/tex] tags put you in math mode, which would normally be between $ delimiters (or other delimiters for display mode etc) in LaTeX. In math mode you have to put in your own spaces.
